pitch shot since i can remember. it was just right in the middle. >> what about real quick on the 6th hole you hit it in the water like a third of the field did. were you shaky there? >> i was relatively calm. the second time i've done that this week. i knew what to expect. i knew i had moles coming up to make birdies. i knew not to panic. >> you showed off the tour championship trophy. turn around and show off the fedex cup trophy. brandt snedeker, the winner in 2012! by the way, good luck in the ryder cup next week. if you missed any of today's action, get caught up on golf channel's golf central. the ryder cup returns to american soil as team europe and team usa play next week.

detectives are investigating but it's not clear how many times the officer fired or how many times he was hit. >> i know that they responded and the subject was uncooperative. it is suspected that the subject is not from this area. the detectives are making an attempt to limit -- to notify the next of kin and locate where he is from. >> police are not releasing the man's name this evening. as for the two officers involved, we are told they are veterans of the force but they are on administrative leave pending an investigation. baltimore county police want anyone with information to give them a call. >> the new england patriots
crashed baltimore's hopes for a lombardi trophy, but they square off and ravens fans are hoping for redemption. what are the fans telling you tonight? >> they are very excited about this game. we are set up outside the stadium and the detail getting action and people are looking for revenge from the last time we played the patriots. i've never been to a bachelorettes party, but i would not think this would be the spot. i met up with some brides to be at ts spot. >> we had a great tail gate. we went and had pickles and now we are going to eat hamburgers in the parking lot and we're going to watch tom brady go down. it feels so perfect. >> the party continued a rocking
hours ago. mothers of bar and grill was hopping. here are their predictions for tonight's game. >> i would say 28-24. >> i'm going 31-21. >> based on the past, i'm going 31-17. >> we are still a couple of hours away and there is plenty of time to tailgate. we would love to see pictures of how you are celebrating the game. it's good to our web site and click on ulocal. >>
>> the big story tonight is the game. if you are getting ready to head out, i know all the people are already there but if you are one of the stragglers, here is the forecast -- temperatures in the '60s but it's going to draw down into the 50s, especially after the sun goes down. the skies will be crystal clear and it will be good football other. the high-temperature today was 69. compare that to the average of 75 and i think you will stay below average for the next couple of days. down to 61 and parsons and 61 at the airport. the temperatures are going to fall off quickly and we will wind up with pinpoint skies and
dry air. a little cloud cover showing up most of it is in the far western suburbs. there is even some participation up there. that is going to pass north of us and think should be quite at home. once the sun goes down, it might be cold enough for frost for the first time. temperatures will dip into the '40's but it will be cold enough for frost. sun set at 7:00. by the time you wake up, it's going to be in the '40's. a mixture of sunshine and clouds with high temperatures in the upper 60s. sunrise at 6:56. it will get warmer on tuesday and wednesday, but the chance for rain will go up in the middle of the week. it doesn't look like a big deal. temperatures thing in the '60s and '70s throughout the weeke temperatures thing in the '60s
so anyway, i've been to a lot of places. you know, i've helped a lot of people save a lot of money. temperatures thing in the '60s and '70s throughout the weeke but today...( sfx: loud noise of metal object hitting the ground) things have been a little strange. (sfx: sound of piano smashing) roadrunner: meep meep. meep meep?
>> coming to you live from the field -- the ravens and patriots are getting ready for sunday night football. just moments ago, torrey smith took the field, talking to friends and many were offering condolences. he lost his brother who was killed in a motorcycle accident late last night. he is always a big play threat on this team and you have to wonder what kind of frame of mind is he going to be in? that is part of the reality.
jacoby john's has stepped up. if they have to use him more, joe flacco is fine with that. >> he is always a good athlete and creates a lot on the outside and that allows us to free up the tight ends and our running back. all of those things that work favorably for us so far. >> elsewhere in the division, we have the redskins played host to the cincinnati bengals. first play of the game -- the wide receiver -- have you started a quarterback for your fantasy team? the shed. late in the third, robert griffin the third, beautifully executed. tied 24 apiece. and the dalton -- we saw how fast he could beat. the bangles that the when.
cincinnati 2-1 on the season. let's talk about baseball -- the orioles with a six-game winning streak going into today's game. looking to go for the sweep at fenway. cody ross trying to turn to wide throw run scores -- i can't believe he is 20 years old. he made his debut and has to out. down to one, bases loaded, looking at strike three -- he is not going to sleep terribly well tonight. the orioles won game back from the new york yankees as the
